Countertops are an integral part of any kitchen design. They are the finishing touch and can make or break your kitchen. Countertops are the binding agent between the cabinets, the backsplash, the flooring and the wall colors. They can be bold, subtle, colorful or neutral but whichever you choose they need to be selected with much consideration. Because they are such a large horizontal mass in the middle of the room their impact is tremendous. The material selection for countertops is mind boggling to say the least. Natural stone, Composite, Manmade stone, woods of all kinds, concrete, plastic laminate, lots of different metals and glass, even paper. So it helps to do your homework because they all have their positives and negatives depending upon your lifestyle. It’s always wise to seek professional advice when choosing countertops for any room.
